This morning daycare drop off got me
thinking pulling my scarf out.
For one, the teacher is really frustrating me and she is really not making this wonderful daycare pleasant for me in the mornings.
1) She questioned (a month ago) why Aulia' only naps 1.5 to 2 hours? She complained to me that she is the first to wake up and doesn't get back to sleep and ends up waking up other kids (A: not my problem, she naps great at home and B: how LONG you want her to nap?)
2) This morning she had the nerve to tell me that I need to let the daycare know when Aulia' is sick and what she has. (A: I called the daycare the morning I kept fer from daycare and B: The next day when I brought her in I told the teacher that she was sick with HFMD, but not contagious.). She then (and I quote) said "This is the first I have heard about HFMD).. FOR REAL??? omg. You work in a daycare and you have NO information about HFMD?
Needless to say, we will be looking into a new daycare, there is actually a daycare closer to our home but the same owner! Worst case, I'll send my child to my sister's.
Which gets me to the title of this post..I truly don't think she (the daycare teacher) loves what she does. I see she get frustrated with crying babies sometimes. I think she gets off at down talking to me and just isn't happy-go-lucky like the other teachers at the previous daycare. If you don't like what you do..get a new job!
Until we find a new daycare, I need to learn to speak my mind and put this teacher in her place, With the hfmd situation I was little more stern about standing my ground. But I do wish I would have questioned her lack of knowledge.
I personally need to love what I do, also. I need to stand my ground as a Mom. I hate leaving a situation and feeling like I should have said more. Then I end up calling my husband and venting it all out for him. (Love you B!)
Here's to speaking our minds, doing everything possible for our kids and leaving any given situation with a smile on our face, be patient and knowing that we stood up for ourselves!
